Uncensored comments, anywhere.



Are your comments always getting deleted by the owner? In Remark, this is not possible anymore. Your comments can only be deleted by violating our Terms of Service.


Replies, Mentions, Upvotes and Downvotes - we have everything you need! Thanks to our voting system, you will always see the most important comments first.


You could possibly comment anywhere you want! Even on sites that don't have a comment system. And the best of it - you can do all of that with just one account!
